Source/Explanation
"Spider mimicry" describes what Caleb can do.

ok this is really taking the biscuit

it's begining to make me think that Mohinder's ability wasn't really that wrong and was just turning him into a bug. Then we've seen David's ability which seemed to turn him into a wolf like creature. Now a spider. What will they think of next. I know, how about "paint mimicry" or "elephant mimicry"!!! ha lol --mc_hammark 07:38, 27 October 2009 (EDT)

Odd Power

I guess I don't feel that this power seems "Heroes-ish". I could understand if he was just granted some of the abilities of a spider, but actually growing legs...it just seemed TOO fantastical even for this show. It's not that I don't like this power (personally I think it's sweet!) but it just doesn't seem to fit into this world. What are you're ideas? -Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs | 09:02, 27 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Yeah, it's more of a "Beast" (from the X-men) type ability. I've never really been a fan of the physically changing ones like this and Plant manipulation. I mean, don't get me wrong, I would love plant manipulation, the aspects of it are amazing, but the fact that you take on the appearance of a plant-man; it kinda takes away the idea that Tracy asked Noah in Strange Attractors, could evolved humans not walk freely down the street. --mc_hammark 09:06, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
    • Exactly! Both abilities (Spider mimicry and Plant manipulation) are abilities I would LOVE to have, but they just feel...wrong in this world. They're just don't fit with the other abilities. -Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs | 09:13, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
      • They're X-men abilities. Like "toad" from x-men. Who I believe was portrayed by Ray Park. --mc_hammark 09:14, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
        • Haha, really? -Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs | 09:15, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
          • yup! --mc_hammark 09:17, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
            • Very odd power. Does not make sense to me for the Heroes world.--Ratclaws 09:26, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
  • Thoroughly disappointed with this ability.--Riddler 20:01, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
    • I wonder what's next? Gargoyle mimicry, the ability to protrude wings and claws from one's body and become stone? Or just having angel wings, like that guy from X-Men? Green.gif AltesUTC CH
      • Probably. -Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs | 14:47, 29 October 2009 (EDT)
        • More like angel statue mimicry from doctor who, the ability to that turns you to stone whenever someone looks at you to stop you getting hurt.--Fr0z3nB0nes 04:05, 2 November 2009 (EST)
          • Waffle Mimicry(!) I'm kidding, I'm all for Angel Mimicry, in fact, that power has been on my page for quite some time.--Isaac Mendez 10:04, 6 November 2009 (EST)
            • I made waffle mimicry, see here =) but you should also see powers that were suggested on phoenix mimicry's talk page. Green.gif AltesUTC CH

This power has been laid to rest

Good riddance. Green.gif AltesUTC CH

  • ...to bad rubbish? Finally. I always hated this power. Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs 04:21, 27 November 2009 (EST)
    • "I always hated this power." he said in a manner, as though the ability had been around since Genesis. lol --mc_hammark 11:11, 27 November 2009 (EST)
      • Always doesn't have to be a long time. :P Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs 15:20, 27 November 2009 (EST)
        • Shhh, let's pretend this power never existed.--Referos 17:59, 27 November 2009 (EST)

Question

Should it be noted that this ability is the only thus far to have any physical animal characteristics? --OutbackZack 19:16, 20 January 2010 (EST)

  • But it's not. Mohinder's mutation gave him buggy characteristics. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 20:55, 20 January 2010 (EST)
    • Yeah, but not a direct physical appearance of one. I know he was mutated in a possible future, but it's speculation to say he looked like a bug when we didn't see him clearly. --OutbackZack 20:59, 20 January 2010 (EST)
      • The webby material he used to cocoon victims and crawl walls would fall into the category of an animal characteristic. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 21:00, 20 January 2010 (EST)
        • Oh, let me clarify then, taking on the physical animal appearance. --OutbackZack 21:06, 20 January 2010 (EST)
          • He was also growing scales by the end of it. :P --Ricard Desi (t,c) 21:09, 20 January 2010 (EST)
            • I always thought it was just his skin chipping off...?--OutbackZack 21:13, 20 January 2010 (EST)
              • Mohinder's scales and mutations were an effect of an incorrect formula. Calebs are natural.--Riddler 23:57, 20 January 2010 (EST)
